Students at Stockton University will have the opportunity to study in Taiwan under two new agreements with National Chiayi University and National Taichung University of Education.
The agreement with Chiayi provides for up to three Stockton Master of Business Administration students to attend the Taiwan-based university and three graduate business students from Chiayi to attend Stockton each year. Students taking between nine and 15 credits at the visiting institution are eligible for a dual degree from both institutions.
Among the more than 40 courses available to Stockton MBA students at Chiayi are international business management, global logistics, corporate social responsibility and international human resources management.
Stockton will work with Taichung to develop opportunities for undergraduate Stockton students to study in areas including business administration, criminal justice, environmental studies, hospitality and tourism management, and visual and performing arts. The agreement also includes opportunities to develop collaborative research, conferences and lectures between both faculty and students.
Stockton President Harvey Kesselman visited Taiwan in December 2018 where he met with Andy Cheu-An Bi, director general of the Department of International and Cross-Strait Education at the Taiwan Ministry of Education.
“Our relationships with NCYU and NTCU will provide Stockton students the opportunity to learn about another culture and enhance their educations,” Kesselman said. “As a result of our trip, Stockton will become a member of Taiwan’s preferred list of institutions to visit and partner with on exchange programs, academic symposiums and research conferences.”
